The Sandberg TM 5 Creme Highgloss Finish is a wonderful 5 string active bass with some familiar style features. It's a great modern bass for the classic player. A real workhorse that can withstand being on the road and deliver every time. The neck is attached to the body with 6 bolts which gives the bass a more sturdy feel and more solid tone. The preamp can be turned off as well to accomplish an even more authentic classic bass-tone. This particular bass is equipped with a T-style single coil Delano pickup in the neck position and a M-style humbucker Delano pickup with a split function in order to reach the whole spectrum of punch, tone and dynamics.
